    I just kind of wanted to get some information and opions of the equitment i want to buy. First i want to get the M-Audio ProjectMix I/O. and then i want to get the M-Audio Octane 8-Channel Mic Preamp then a MIDI controller and last but not least the pro tools m powered 7.4. Now is this the right kind of set up to record drums guitar bass etc?

    sounds to me like you'll need some microphones.

    And cables for your new Shure SM57 or maybe a Rode NT-1 which has been mentioned a lot for guitars recently.
    And a cable to run from your Bass DI box.
    Also some stands for your overheads for the drum kit.

    Monitors and acoustic treatment can help it sound better, or so I've heard.

    OK, I guess we can drop the sarcastic overtones now and get down to good ole fashioned helping people. Or was it just me being sarky?

    I know nothing about the Roland gear though.

    It was pretty much just you monkeyboy... :twisted:

    Uh huh...

    NOW you goobers know how YOU sounded when you first started out... doncha'?

    And we used to get all kinds of grief from the young bucks for being a bit gruff... now the young bucks are doing it too....

    My how time flies....

    OK, about yer' triggers... They're just another line level signal coming in from the Roland.

    Im pretty sure you could also use Midi with the TD-6. This way you could experiment with the samples.
